Bah! Scooped by Ausiello! We’ve been sitting on this story for a couple of days waiting on confirmation for an item, but Ausiello got there first. I guess that counts as confirmation.
Before he was Chuck, Zachary Levi was ambitious, snarky Kipp Stedman on ABC’s Less Than Perfect, starring Sarah Rue. ChuckTV.net has learned that Zac will reunite with one of his Less Than Perfect co-stars this season when Eric Roberts (who played anchorman Will Butler) guests on Chuck. He’ll be part be part of Casey’s former Special Ops team referenced in this spoiler from TV Guide.
Also part of the team are Squintern, filmmaker and Zac’s BFF Joel David Moore and WWE superstar Batista. I imagine Casey and Batista will be the grunting part of the group while Moore and Roberts are the “I’m a PC” and “I’m a Mac” duo (so NOT Justin Long and John Hodgman). The trio begin filming on Monday, August 30.
But wait, Roberts has even more connections to Chuck! He can currently be seen on the big screen in The Expendables, co-starring with Steve Austin (Hugo Panzer from season 3 and returning in season 4) and Dolph Lundgren (guest starring in season 4). Check out the photo of the three Chuck guest stars together at a screening of The Expendables earlier this month:
